ATTENTION: THE FOLLOWING REPORT IS A RUMOR. PLEASE TAKE THE FOLLOWING STORY WITH A GRAIN OF SALT.
The highly anticipated Obi-Wan Kenobi series is set to release at the end of May just after the 45th Anniversary of the Star Wars franchise. Seeing fan favorite actor Ewan McGregor return as Obi-Wan Kenobi since his last appearance in Revenge of the Sith definitely has fans excited.
However it appears that the ending to the series has supposedly “leaked” online thanks to makinstarwars.com. (None of this has been confirmed.)
WARNING: THE FOLLOWING SECTION MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS. PLEASE CONTINUE AT YOUR OWN DISCRETION.
The leaks seem to suggest that the series will pull a bait and switch with the titular character not being quite as prominent while the new character, Reva, will take up a good chunk of the series.
Reva, a female inquisitor and former Jedi, will apparently be playing detective in discovering what Kenobi is hiding on Tatooine as well as the whereabouts of Luke Skywalker. By the end she will have found and cornered Luke and his family, ready to kill them. But before doing so she feels sympathy for the boy and decides to spare them and leaves the planet. Somewhat indicating Kenobi wasn’t very good at his job.
So far it appears that fans are rather concerned with the commotion surrounding the rumored ending:
So I have read the ending to the Obi-Wan Kenobi show and if plot leak turns out to be true, this could one of the most controversial Star Wars shows ever made.— Bradley (@the_Bradster007) May 10, 2022
This show was originally supposed to be sooner but Kathleen Kennedy ordered the show be re-written and delayed the production. It’s possible these rumors could have been from an earlier draft or we could get something better or worse.
The Obi-Wan Kenobi series is set to release on May 29th exclusively on Disney Plus with a total of six episodes.
Will you be watching the show? What do you think will happen? Do you think there might be some truth to these rumors?
